New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will have another video conference with state Chief Ministers tomorrow. The meeting — the fifth since the lockdown started –will be held at 3 pm.

Sources indicated that the discussion will be held on the lockdown which is expected to end on May 17.

Earlier today, Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba held a video conference with Chief Secretaries and Health Secretaries of all the states and union territories.

Sources said a lot of states raised objections to the red, green and orange zone markings, saying with the way the number of cases are rising in districts with the return of migrants, most of the districts will come under red zone.

Several states argued that this will make a return to normalcy difficult.
They suggested that in case of the current colour coding rules, areas with quarantine centres be notified as red zones.
